Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey 2015 – Sauternes, 1er Grand Cru Classé

(93% Semillon, 6% Sauvignon, 1% Muscadelle) The nose is fruity, fine, elegant and offers richness and freshness. It reveals notes of fresh lemon and fruit in syrup associated with a hint of apple, fresh pineapple as well as slight touches of dry apricot. The palate is fruity, gourmand, well-defined, well balanced, relatively aerial and offers a nice fat, richness, concentration, precision, an acid frame and tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of candied lemon and mandarin associated with fine touches of white fruits in syrup, vine peach as well as a discreet hint of dried apricot (in the background). Good length.
